from 80-83 I would take these shows ahead of 03-09, don't get me wrong 03-09 is a great show...03-09 would be right there with 05-01-81 for me...

09-06-80, 10-10-80, 05-06-81, 05-16-81, 10-19-81, 04-19-82, 08-03-1982, 10-10-82, 10-15-83

If I were to say one show was the best of that era it would be this one.

I like this new source. The lack of a matrixable SBD keeps this show from getting its due credit. I just spent 4 hours on a plane listening to this from start to finish. WOW! I saw the two shows bookending this but I was still a newb and didn't get tickets for the Saturday show. The only show I honestly regret missing that I easily could have seen. I never did that again.

My two favorite China/Riders, this one and your pick.

Too bad there's no way to surgically remove the Tenn Jed>LLR tumor from this show.

This is still my favorite show of 1981, altho' there were many many good ones in this very underrated year. That MSG 3-9-81 show is fantastic, too...but I still say this one has the best execution of material, even if the set list appears "ordinary."

dont recall anything wrong with the TJed and LLR, why pick on the originals from the E72 sets when they trot out Around and Around and that damn awful Good Lovin in the second set?

Because they suck. Row Jimmy, Eyes, HCS, Stagger Lee, or Jack a Roe would've fit the bill there.

Just sayin'
